Managing director of GLL, which runs the venue, Mark Sesnan said: "There has been an investment of over £4m from GLL and £1m from our funding partners and we thank each of them for their support.

"The lido provides south east London with a new Olympic-sized 50m pool that is heated and open air.

"The lifestyle club offers a range of innovative features and activities that take health and fitness to a new level.

"There is also a superb new cafeteria with terraces overlooking the pools and the park.

"This will be a great community facility whatever the weather."
